    Hi, – nice video! I’m planning to cut a hole in my Beneteau First 38 to get some sea view from the cabin at put extra portlights in, so this is an inspiration.

    What do you think about making holes for portlights in the sides of the hull a little behind the mast? Could it weaken the hull too much?. The cutout will be around 429 mm x 171 mm.

    Hi Andy, First let me say that I think you are the best on Youtube for clearly explaining, and showing, how to complete various boat projects.
    I re-cored the decks on my 1975 O’Day 27 last year and the whole job went really well due to your videos. Again, thank you.
    I am replacing the windows this year. I have removed the old ones (inner and outer frame) and would like to put new surface mount ones back in. Mine are almost vertical. Would you recommend Acrylic or polycarbonate?

      Hi Shane!

      Personally I’d go with poly. Much easier to work with unless you have the equipment to work with acrylic… Plus, it’s much less brittle!!!

      Hope this helps!

      Good luck ๐Ÿ˜‰
